Giving Back

We are so very blessed in many ways. We are where we are now because of parents, mentors, and organizations that invested in our future. The best time to start giving back is now. The following are charities that I support with my time and money.

By donating portions of my livelihood, I've learned empathy, which is a the core of our duties as members of a global community.

Associates In Critical Need Trust (ACNT)

What began with Sam Walton's conviction to stand by associates has today become the Associates in Critical Need Trust (ACNT), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides charitable grants up to $1,500 to associates in crisis. ACNT's mission is to provide financial assistance to cover basic needs for Walmart associates who have experienced extreme financial difficulty through no fault of their own.

National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)

The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

People can donate to the Humanitarian Aid Fund that aims to relieve suffering, foster self-reliance and provide opportunities for service.

Action Against Hunger

Their global efforts save hundreds of thousands of lives each year, but millions of undernourished children remain in need of lifesaving treatment. Action Against Hunger is committed to doubling the number of children who receive urgent hunger care, from three million to six million by 2020.

Bread For The World

Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.

Feed the Children

The organization envisions a world where no child goes to bed hungry. To help create that world, we are dedicated to helping families and communities achieve stable lives and to reducing the need for help tomorrow—all while providing food and assistance to help them today.
